Branch needs to play Sunday

We need to trade Stecker's roster spot for Branch so we have 2 up-the-gut runners to wear down the Bears' D. It's going to be snowing so power running for 4 quarters is the key to victory. I like Deuce, Branch, and Bush, better in the snow, and we'll have our hands full with Benson and Jones. This may be a very low scoring game riddled with turnovers. If Devery and Copper have trouble catching in a dome I don't see them catching well in the snow.

The ball's not going to be covered in snow. If there is snow on the ground, the advantage goes to the receiver, who knows where he's going.

But, the ball will be wet. I'd still like to have Branch in there instead of Stecker as an insurance policy.

I too like the idea of Branch better than Stecker. If you ask me Stecker hasn't done much for us this year. Either he needs to step up or go away.

branch might be better in the future, but stecker has the experience, knowledge, and CAN PICK UP A BLITZ! In this big game, I'll take Stecker.

I don't see why everyone is on DH's case about catching balls. Did anyone see that Cincy game??? The guy proved his justice right there. He has did everything right, has only one contreversial drop this season and only dropped like 3 to 5 passes. C'mon geesh!

I as well like Branch over Stecker in any game not just this one. He can catch, block, and run 10x better than Stecker. Screw experience when comparing these two, Stecker sux! If he can pick up a blitz so much, you must haven't watch the last game of the season when Martin was getting hammered. He cannot catch as good either, he dropped a pass last week in the endzone that could've been a TD, I put money on it that Branch would've made that catch
